Dr. Gilbert’s dream is to provide excellent care to our four-legged family friends; including exotic animals. As a veterinarian for more than 20 years, he decided to enhance his knowledge in medicine and surgery under the mentorship of the Ontario Veterinary College in Guelph – VSTEP program.
His experience as a former professor, researcher and social worker provide him with the perfect tools to address the complexities of animal care, diagnosis and treatment. He received several awards and citations for his contribution to veterinary medicine in the Philippines. He obtained a Diploma in Veterinary Anatomic Pathology from Ontario Veterinary College in Guelph and was awarded the degree of Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy in Veterinary Pathology and Microbiology from James Cook University, Townsville, Australia.
Dr. Gilbert likes to spend time explaining to his clients and answers questions especially when it comes to tumors and disease processes. He has a family oriented approach to every client that comes into the hospital. Gardening and Gym are his two favorite past times. He spends most of his time at home with his wife Roselyn, daughter Thea, son Chad and the youngest daughter Lana.
Dr. Apollo is an established small animal veterinarian with several years’ experience in the veterinary and pharmaceutical industries. After years in the pharmaceutical industry both in Kenya and Canada, Dr. Apollo elected to return to veterinary practice and attended the VSTEP program at Ontario Veterinary College Guelph where he enhanced his Veterinary skills while preparing for his Certification. Since getting his North American Veterinary license in 2010, he has worked in busy 24 hour veterinary hospitals in the GTA and was inspired to settle down in private practice.
Dr. Apollo enjoys working with our four legged furry friends and has special interests in medicine, dentistry and surgery. He says the most rewarding thing about his job is educating clients and enabling pets to live longer and healthier lives.
A keen sports fan, in his spare time Dr. Apollo enjoys hiking outdoors, spending time with wildlife on safari and loves traveling with his family; or you may find him giving his time to help out at the OSPCA.
